FOR POSTING : “Against Global Warming”, a new essay by Robert Cheshire.

This is a brilliant new essay by Robert Cheshire and I am forwarding it to Dave Burleigh for posting in the essay section of and simultaneously posting it on the blog. It inverts “Dogma” to give “Amgod”, a suitable summary of some of those among us who walk on immense pylons and flail their arms like the demented. Also forwarding to the entire Principia group.

Professor Evans,
Many thanks for your draft. I have given it careful review.

I note that you have not included in your legal argument any reference to the astonishing new ruling by the Compliance Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). Perhaps you’ve not been advised of it yet. I strongly urge that you amend your proposed statement of claim to include reference to this potential game changing decision made last Summer. In it UNECE decided it was incumbent on all member EU states to enforce the Aarhus Convention. This gives additional weight to your human rights arguments and need for governments to apply due process (which they patently haven’t!).

As such, it is a requirement under the Convention that the EU must apply those principles as adopted at the 1992 Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro. In a nutshell all EU States must properly reassess their National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAP).

Pat Swords, author of the successful complaint to the UN that the EU now agrees it must apply, advises: “the Compliance Committee has shown that the EU’s renewable energy programme is proceeding without ‘proper authority’.” Currently, the EU has about 60,000 wind turbines and related infrastructure, which have cost some €180 billion.

I concur with Pat Swords that the EU and its 27 Member States must be suspend all further wind farm development until the conclusion of consultation as stipulated in the ruling. I have advised the Devon community I’m assisting in this matter and they are instructing their legal counsel accordingly. Among PSI there are only two of us qualified in law, myself and Alberto Miatello in Italy. I’m adding Alberto’s email for convenience so he may make use of all such evidence as he sees fit in his home country.

I hope that helps.
